Our top 10 weekly selection of DSTV Now | Showmax | YouTube | Netflix | Amazon Prime
How’s that summer body going? Kak hey? Probs because it is a 2 year lockdown body on top of it as well. Ag, you can put it off by another week. I’m 10kgs up myself and no fucks are given. You don’t need to get into shape right now because round is also a shape. Ja-ja, summer and sun is basically here, so you can do all the outdoorsy stuff but once the sun goes down, you can mos klap a lekker marathon from your couch.

Go get your TV-kyking tekkies, we’re doing a marathon this weekend! Check out these 4 befokte HBO series you can stream!
The White Lotus
This is a limited comedy drama series of 7 episodes which follows the outrageous exploits of the employees and guests of an exclusive Hawaiian resort over the course of a very strange week. One episode per day. Clever, hey?  This HBO series knocks it out of the park with Connie Britton, Steve Zahn and Molly Shannon. Oh, and Stiffler’s mom (Jennifer Coolidge)! Jake Lacey said that due to the Covid-19 production bubble, the cast in-real life stayed in the same hotel and ate every meal together at the same restaurant just like their characters in the show. It was shot at the Four Seasons Resort in Maui, Hawaii.
From the peanut gallery:
“No idea what this is about. Producers take note: THIS is exactly how a trailer should be.”

Bridge and Tunnel
An 80s dramady about a group of college graduates eager to pursue their dreams in Manhattan while still clinging to the familiarity of their working-class Long Island home town.  Directed by Edward Burns who also stars in this series. It looks like a slow burner, so I will put it on ice for Sunday afternoon.
From the peanut gallery:
“For the people who don’t like the trailer, you realise it’s a romantic film more loved by girls right? your girlfriend will love it I can assume.”

Mosaic
Starring Sharon Stone and directed by Steven Soderbergh (The Knick, Logan Lucky, Contagion, The Girlfriend Experience), this limit series will have you at the edge of your seat. A mystery thriller that takes place in small town Park City, Utah – home to a major celebrity – which is rocked by a disappearance. But there is so much more going on here. A whodunit based on the murder of popular children’s book author and illustrator Olivia Lake.
Sharon Stone FTW!

At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal
This hard-hitting, unflinching HBO documentary uncovers the scandal of the US women’s Olympic gymnastics after USA Gymnastics was rocked by the revelation that national team doctor Larry Nassar had been abusing young athletes for decades. This documentary unpacks the scandal, the cover-ups and the aftermath, while giving voice to the survivors and it features exclusive interviews with the survivors.
From the peanut gallery:
“A few years ago Dominique Moceanu was the first one to speak out about USAG and the Karolyis. People said she was lying. Now we find out that what not only was she correct – but it was a million times worse.”

Need more streaming goodness? Check out our top 10 list of movies and TV series picks from The Plumlist. It is my to-go-to website when I’m stuck for streaming ideas from Netflix, Showmax and Amazon Prime:
 #10. The White Lotus is a cutting wealth satire about a hellish holiday
HBO’s limited six-episode series – or as we used to call it in the old days, miniseries – has been described as a comedy-drama. It’s about 20-80 that, but ultimately it is a deeply, darkly tragic story populated by characters who are either entirely unsympathetic or tremendously anguished… or both.

# 9. 7 shows and movies to watch if you love Ted Lasso
You either love Apple or you hate Apple, for its sheer arrogance and reluctance to play nicely with others. From phones that refuse to recognise Bluetooth devices or anything other than an own-brand cable, to Apple TV+ and its one-episode-a-week format in a world increasingly devoted to binge-viewing, there is no middle ground.

#8. Brand New Cherry Flavor is “an engrossing and pleasantly odd ride”
My late great-aunt Edie was a gentle and sensitive soul. Whenever she’d watch television or movies, she’d keep a cushion on her lap, into which she would bury her face every time something scary or disturbing happened on-screen. Now, decades later, after watching this extremely crazy, extraordinarily weird, oftentimes hugely disturbing limited series, I can finally relate.

 #7. Settle in for another season of Good Girls’ addictive charm
You get psychologically wired because as one episode rolls into the next, for a fleeting moment you think “stop now” but you can’t because it’s just too…dramatic. So when you get into bed, you can’t sleep and while you’re lying there all you can think of is “I could be watching another episode. I could have crossed the finish line.”

#6. Stream the M-Net Sunday Night Movie in September 2021
These movies air at 21:05 every Sunday night on M-Net, channel 101, on DStv, and they will also be available to stream within 24 hours on DStv online to all DStv Premium subscribers, so you can watch them wherever and whenever suits you.

 #2. Your Honor: Bryan Cranston returns to TV for the first time in eight years
How far would you go to protect your child? That’s the question Judge Michael Desiato (Oscar nominee and multiple Emmy winner Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad) is faced with in the thriller Your Honor, now streaming on Showmax.

 #1. Seven reasons to watch Huisgenoot: Ware Lewensdramas
South Africans have not stopped talking about Devilsdorp since it was released on Showmax at the end of July. One of the things that make the true-crime drama stand out is how the inconceivable bizarreness of event upon event makes up the canvas of the unbelievably horrific bigger picture of the Krugersdorp Killings between 2012 and 2016.

Our randomized trailer pick of the week

Each week we take a number from 1 to 10 from our list of suggestions and put it through a randomizer to choose a trailer to show you. This week it landed on our number 3 spot, When good gods go bad: 10 cult-related shows to stream” and from that list we spun the wheel again and it landed on number 3:  Inside The Criminal Mind:
They may appear to be as ordinary as your next-door neighbor. In reality they’re far from it. Serial Killers possess an unquenchable thirst for murder, performed with a total lack of remorse. Their names are seared into our collective consciousness as symbols unthinkable terror: Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer. Their heinous deeds are immortalized by their fearsome nicknames, Zodiac Killer, Green River Murderer and the BTK Strangler…Bind, Torture, Kill. For decades criminologists and forensic scientists have searched for keys to unlock the twisted psyche of these monsters. This episode journeys inside the minds of these murderers to discover the reasons for their heinous acts. Was it an abusive childhood or was it hard-wired from birth? How is it possible for any human being to be this evil?
